. don't you worry about us. we saw record crowds here on the mall four years ago, of course, for president obama's first inauguration. and now officials aren't expecting a repeat, though. but still, they know that hundreds of thousands of people will be here, and that is a big challenge, of course, for security. cnn pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence, is on seventh street, keeping an eye on security there for us. chris, good morning to you. how many people do they have guarding the city right now as we prepare for the upcoming inaugural? >> reporter: randi, it's hard to put an exact number on it. we know most of d.c.'s 4,000 cops will be on duty. they've also pulled in about 2,000 to 3,000 other police officers from all around the country and about 6,000 national guard troops as well, who will be helping a lot of the federal agencies. so right there, doing the math, that's 12,000, 13,000. that's not even counting the atf, fbi, and secret service agents who will really be running this security plan. so a lot of people in place, you know, for this crowd, expected to be coming i
